‘Global visitor pre-registration levels are already looking very good with four times more Asian visitors registered compared with last year’s event, treble the number of European visitor pre-registrations and a doubling of numbers from the Middle East reflecting the great interest in this emerging market.’

The ‘Match & Meet’ programme, developed especially for CPhI South America, pairs the needs of distributors, buyers and sellers with one another to facilitate face-to-face networking opportunities.

International representatives seeking to sell, buy, distribute or represent companies will have the perfect platform to meet with interested partners, close commercial agreements and network. This year's Match & Meet sessions will have dedicated themes: Day 1 will focus on APIs; Day 2 highlights excipients and Day 3 covers ‘finished dosage.’

Now in its third year, CPhI South America is being held in the heart of Argentina’s pharmaceutical manufacturing hub. The events benefit from the valuable support of key Argentinean trade associations CILFA, COOPERALA and Camara Argentina de Productos Quimicos, as well as South American associations ABIFINA, ABRIFAR, ABIQUIF and Associquim Sincoquim.
